Sairoon says PM reason behind delay in cabinet formation

Iraq's Sairoon Alliance led by Shia leader Muqtada al-Sadr has held Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi responsible for the delay in completing the government lineup formation, pointing out that the list of candidates for remaining ministries has been ready for over a month.

Sairoon member Badr al-Ziadi said in a Saturday press remarks that the cabinet formation has long been delayed, pointing out that the Prime Minister refrains from submitting the names of candidates, claiming the lack of consensus between political parties and coalitions over some ministries.

“The list of names in Abdul Mahdi’s possession is the same one that was ready before last month, ready to be submitted to the Parliament for voting,” Al-Ziadi added.

It is determined that the Iraqi Parliament will vote on candidates for the remaining ministries.
